The hour's drive through this wilderness must be one of the most spectacular in the world. There are lots of places to stop and enjoy the view. Take rain coats as I have now done the trip four times and on three occasions, all in Summer, it has been raining. But that does not spoil the atmosphere. We stopped at... More

Well the title is an understatement. We drove up to Skye and the very wet drive through the Glen was interesting, but none-the-less stunning. We had a 'butty' stop in a lay-by to the sound of a thundering waterfall, round the bend and through the narrow high walled road to the splendid view of the Glen itself. On our way... More

My wife and I did a walk up to the Lost Valley off the main roadway. We enjoyed hearing the piper playing in the parking area as started our walk. It was a gorgeous day and a lovely hike.

Just driving through the Glen is amazing. Everytime you see new things and it looks different driving from different ways. Plenty of stop off points to take photos. Personally I think it looks best with the mist and the looming storm clouds.

There is a very good visitor centre here that tells the story of events at Glen Coe, as well as the natural history. There are a number of walks out into the Glen, but the view from the visitor centre up the valleys is just beautiful. It was a dark day in Scottish history and it is good that it... More

Driving through Glencoe valley is great. Leaving the road and walking into the mountains is fantastic. Propably the best known walk is the one to the 'Lost Valley'. You need 3 hours, good walking shoes and water. The best 'short' walk we did during our holiday.
